But first, let’s back up to last night, which was full of deliciousness!
When we first arrived home, we hung out a bit waiting for my dad to get off work. My sister and I even had enough time to run out to T.J. Maxx where she succumbed to the trend and bought her first running skirt (so cute!) and I found a nice pair of light blue Nike running shorts for $13. Score!
Once we arrived back home, it was dinn-ah time.
For dinner we enjoyed lasagna, scallops with almonds and grapes, baked fish and veggies in a light butter sauce.
I went back for seconds of everything but the scallops (but only because they were gone!).
As always, my favorite part of the meal was dessert.
My mom made one of my all-time favorite desserts and everyone overindulged as if we’d never have dessert again!
She made a ton of cookie stacks using Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies and homemade whipped cream.
I had four stacks. Yes, I am a champ!
This dessert is always such a hit!
Whipped Cream and Chocolate Wafer Cookie Stacks
In medium bowl, whip cream, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until stiff. Place a daub of whipped cream on each cookie, and stack in groups of 4 or 5. Chill in refrigerator 15 minutes. Cover and chill 3 hours before serving.
As you know, our wedding guest list will be finalized this weekend. Eek!
I loved all of your comments and advice regarding wedding guest lists. You guys are awesome!!! Thank you to the amazing Donna, who emailed me with this fabulous diagram to help with guest list decisions.
How cool is that!?
After breakfast, my dad, sister and I are taking a spinning class together before the weekend madness sets in!
We have two wedding-related appointments, including:
- Appointment at the Vinoy to meet with the catering manager
- Appointment at 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House (possible location of our rehearsal dinner) to discuss pricing
Annnnd, I’m off!
